promptly told that no Negroe* would be

however, that "we can givojtou a hand-

The method used by Tony and attend- 
ant* in tbo restaurant in violation of 
the law, 1* to allow about 35 or 30 per- 
son* to come in the restaurant and then 
an attendant in the reetaurant knocks 
On the door that opens into the saloon 
which is a signal that everything is all 
right and Tony opens the door, scrutin- 
ising each one as they pass into the, 
saloon until the aaloon is filled, then 
he shuts the door. 

While thia bnneh is being served by 
two bartenders, another line is being 
formed in the restaurant, the attend- 
ant of which is very polite and cour- 
teous, every few minutes knocking on 
the" door, telling Tony to "hurry up." 
During this time there [a no color line 
drawn in the restaurant. The police 
were a short distance away, but seemed 
to pay no attention to the crowd. 

It is the belief that Tony owns the 
re? tau rant and ha* issued this order so 
the Negroes will lie compelled to eat in 
the aaloon where they will spend their 
money for drinks, 

Host or th*. Negroes seem to have 
■Ivan the matter very little attention 
and some of them were seen going into 
the place whsa they knew they were 
discriminated against, white Other* say 
that a boycott will be put on the res- 
taurant- and saloon.

White people who have bought more 
than one thousand lots In old Kinloch 
Park have been pacing the same prices 
on the tamo terms aa the Colored peo- 
ply who have bought in South Kinloch 
Park. If there is any difference, the 
Colored people have been getting the 
beat of it, because South -KUloeh Park 
Is nearer the city and has better street 
ear sendee. 

The good Colored people of South 
Kinloch Park have built themselves a 
little oity of which they have a right 
to be proud. 

More than a hnndred homes, three 
churches, and a splendid public school 
have been built in the last few yean. 
And now we have something new 
that is going to mean a bigger and bet-

We have been able to indueo a num- 
ber of white people of good standing 
to come In with us snd co-operate with 
ua — tn help with their money, their in- 
fluence and their good will to make 
South Kinloch Park a bigger and bet- 
ter place for the eelf-reepecting Negro 
to live and make bit home. 

Wa have given these penpli 
share of onr profits in order 
their help, because we bellevo I 
the benefit of everybody coocei 

We have always been ready to give 
land to the churches it a nominal p:

We have elsraja been rci.dy to give

There mam to. the editor's desk, the January number of the 
■■Wilncrfortc Bulletin," describing the Commercial Courses given 
at Wilberforee I'ui varsity, Wil her force, Ohio.' 

Anions other interesting StetB, the Bulletin shows that there are 
opportunities in for the Negro, covering a wide range, and 
that the young man trained in commercial pursuit* lacks not a field 
in which to exercise his Training. 

The Bulletin contains S selected lint of occupations in which 
Negroes in the 1". S, are engaged. The occupations shown are 
those «M, from their very nature, seem to require training in 
cam-ram?, Bronte* and accounts. Among these occupations appear 
managers ami superintendents of manufacturing concerns, to the 
number of "To- officials nf manufacturing concerns, 44; manu- 
facturer.. -t,T-_>7. In the lie* 0* commerce or trade are shown. 135 
bankers and bank officials, 70 commercial brokers and commission 
men 1.73* insurance agents, 105 officials of insurance companies, 
7fil! real estate agents and officials. 20,653 retail dealer*, and many 
Others. , 

The hVures above clearly show that opportunities for trained 
boys ami girls of our race are many and varied. Most every line 
of business to be mentioned you will find a Colored man engaged 
in it. Many other opportunities are being afforded us today by the 
white rare that were never offered before. And with the continua 
tion of the present European war, and the great possibility ofetjhe 
United States being drawn into it at any moment, many avenues 
that have heretofore heen closed to the Negro will be opened, 
and the trained and. the fitted or prepared will take their places 
with credit, white the ignorant and the indolent will be left behind 

The Bulletin issued by Witherforce University contains many 
interesting subjects and should be read by every ambitious boy 
and girl. 


The finding by the police Wednesday of a complete policy game 
layout in the home "f a 'Colored woman on Mills St. is but the be 
ginning of what promises to be the exposure of extensive gambling 
operation in the once nourishing game of guess. 

It is to be. hoped that the men higher up who reap large revenue 
from. policy games, will be found and the evil stamped out by the 
police and P roaeeutin« attorney. Policy games as played, have as 
their patrons, in a large measure, hard working Colored men and 
women, who can ill afford to risk and lose their meager earnings in 
an effort to win where the odds are more than a hundred to one. 

Ninety per «Bt l,f the P" 1 '^ vendors are Negro men who work 
on a percentage basis and it is said that they make an average of 
from five to six dollars per day in percentages; these vendors go 
from house to house in their- Canvass for players and some of them 
it is said, have regular routes with hundreds of misguided Negro 
men and women as their customers. 

Thousands of dollars go into the coffers of the men higher up 
each' wc,ck and ninety-nine per cent of this money is contributed by 
men and women of the Negro race. 


At a conference Tuesday, more than fifty Protestant ministers 
came to the conclusion that St Louis is below par spiritually; this 
conclusion is truly in harmony with the prevailing conditions and , 
the Argus wonders if it is not the fault of the members of the dif- 
ferent churches.

On Monday evening, Feb. 1!, one of 
the largest audiences- in the history of 
Wheatley Branch T. W. C. A. gathered 
Id the auditorium to witness the vis 
uatizatioo of Winston Ch archill '• 
"Crisis," the occasion being the com 
memorction of Lincoln's birthday. The 
picture as well as the excellent music 
furnished by the Fortnightly Orchestra 
wis indeed a rare treat not often ex 
celled. The seating capacity of the au 
ditorium was overtaxed snd many were 
compelled tu stand. This photoplay la 
the first nf a series that the Educational 
Committee of Wheatley Branch Y. W. 
C. A. expects to prases t to the public 
It is their hope to solect from the mas? 
of pictures such phutoplays as will ere 
ate an increasing interest and a demand 
for "Better Moving Pictures." 

The next big treat for St. Loniaaus 
will be the coming or Mr. Roland w 
Hayes, of Boston, the premier tenor of 
America. His voice is of powerful 
rsnge snd wonderful sweetness. There 
is no doubt but that he will captivate 

Annual election of officers of the 
Wheatley Branch of tie Young Worn

That (he Wheatley Branch Y. W. C.' A= is filling an important 

place in the'eommunity life of the Colored people of this city has 

been fully demonstrated by the wholesome entertainments given 

by the educational department recently. 

The public is beginning .to appreciate, more and more the real 
value of these cntertainmentB and are lending their financial and 
moral support to these efforts in appreciable numberm. 

The Association has been successful in bringing to St. Louis the 
best talent of nur race, who have given some very high-clssa en- 
tertainments, both vocal snd instrumental, at a very small price of 

It has not heen the purpose of the committee to make money 
from these entertainments, but they have been pleased when they 
have iven something really worth while. 

Parents should encourage their <hil6*ren to attend these enter- 
tainments whi-h are helpful and intpiring to the youth, thus edu- 
cating them that they may be able^ differentiate between the high 
and elevating a* against the low and degrading. 

Judging from the past, if 'it is under the auspices of Wheatley 
Branch Y. W, C A., it is worth while.

The Building Committee met from 
time to time, as the work progrsssed 
and everything was gone over thor- 
mghly. Wo realize that much delay 
nd many complications arose that 
onld have been avoided if all the 
vork had been given to one contractor. 
But when the contracts were given it 
seemed to the committee that it wonld 
be cheaper to give a con tract for each 
part of the work — bat as the work de- 
veloped we found that it was not 
cheaper and caused na much concern.

deeply; interested in the work, snd gave 
the best' of his or her thought and ex-

tions to eoroe.- 

As we look back upon it wa think 
many things could have been done in 
a different way, bat tin committee 
felt that they did the beat they could 
under the circumstances. 

No matter what complications 
the committee worked together ia love 
and harmony. Through this service we 
feel that we hav? gained much 
strength and understanding that we 
could not have had otherwise.
